I've been to BlueAcre a handful of times with friends and family. The fish dishes are outstanding and the service is really great. We had a situation where we felt as if our Cod dish wasn't living up to our expectations and our server was very helpful in getting that dish replaced. The server also asked for feedback for the chef! They're definitely a restaurant if you to have a business meeting in or take your family to nice a dinner.

We had oysters, mussels, cod, halibut and salmon at the table. The cod, halibut and oysters were outstanding. The mussels and salmon were good. We tried cheesecake, brownie and rhubarb tart for dessert. The tart was very good, the brownie was good, the cheesecake was ok. It’s a nice restaurant.

We dine here frequently, the food and service are usually excellent. This visit our service was below par, we were never asked about a drink order or dessert and no explanations or suggestions were given by our waitperson. The food was fine but not the usual five star experience. we will be back with hopes for the very best again.

First time at Blueacre Seafood. The first impression was not welcoming. The host was very non-chalant, not a positive customer experience when walking in the door.
The waitstaff however were much more friendly and attentive.
Food was good but not excellent, primarily the dessert was not what I expected.
Overall good but not sure I’d return given the initial impression.

First time dining here. We really enjoyed it. The fish and chips is special—best I’ve had. My wife had first of the season Halibut which was superb. Excellent wine choices and friendly service. Good value as well. It is somewhat noisy, but conversation was possible. If you like seafood, check it out.

Overall, we enjoyed the dining experience. Only Negative was the King Crab was over cooked, and at $90 for the portion seemed a little excessive. It was almost impossible to crack the shells they were so rubbery. Great wine list! Delicious Oysters.

Seattle seafood! Got 4.5 stars! And could take a table of 6 with no trouble at the last minute. But what a disappointment. My cooked oyster app was so over salted it hurt my mouth. It sits in a bed of rock salt- not sure why the kitchen would think I’d want those big chunks of salt also in my food. Local rockfish fish and chips was horribly and sadly over cooked. I couldn’t even eat the fries. One guest had mussels in a lemongrass broth that she thought was superb. Another guest had halibut she also said was superb. Service was cheerful but rough-people, stop leaning across guests to serve another guest! - and not around enough. Loud and looked like it was full of tourists and business groups. The decor is dated and unattractive. And expensive. One glass of wine, app and main was $75.

Such a great experience at Blueacre as always! We went with a group of 9 before going to a show and we all loved it. Fresh and tasty oysters, halibut, seared ahi and a seafood salad were some of the the dishes we ordered. Also, with 4 kids in tow, we thoroughly appreciate that they have a kids menu (all the kids chose fish & chips and gave them a thumbs up). Service was above and beyond as well.

This place continually features excellent seafood and I consider it the best of all the places I go for seafood. This includes the Penn Cove mussels I had recently. However, the quality of attention from wait staff is not as consistent. Possibly it's due to the fact that 20% automatically is added to the check so one cannot tacitly express an opinion via the tipping process. That said, I will continue patronizing them and bringing out-of-town friends whenever I want to be assured of an excellent meal.

Let me start by saying that by the end of the meal, we were starting to manufacture reasons to come back to Seattle so we could eat here again. Fantastic food for a variety of palates, we loved the black cod, the lobster, and the halibut. We weren't as enamored of the fish and chips but it was a fantastic and simple dish that was just as advertised; given the rest of the menu, we thought it would be more Top Chef and less best-darned-fish-and-chips-in-town.

Desserts and appetizers were equally delicious. We joked about wanting to make a tapas dinner of the appetizers. Descriptions are accurate and clear and the flavors are perfect.

Service was prompt, professional, and had the balance of just enough hovering to be attentive without feeling overbearing. We came pre-theatre since it's close to Paramount, and the restaurant was fairly empty but filled quickly. It was a solid 90 minute dinner but could have been compressed somewhat with a conversation.

A 20% fee is added to the bill in lieu of a tip, although a tip could still be added. From what I remember, 30% went to tip the folks in the kitchen and 70% went to tip the waitstaff. Prices are high enough to cover the increased salary. While not an inexpensive meal, the quality, ambiance, and service are superb.

Overall, the experience was not so great! Found out that gratuity of 20% Is automatically included when you get your bill. That choice should be left up to the customer, especially if the service is slow and unattentive. Food was OK, but certainly not the best I’ve had for the prices on the menu. There are much better places to go for this type of food.

I thought that the quality had slipped just a smidge since last time I was there. Bread was now a charge, and I thought that the topping on the scallops was unecessarily bitter. They didn't have the Draper Farms chicken which is so delicious. So . . . maybe just a bit of a dip. Still some of the best seafood in town. And, as an attorney, I love the cocktail menu names! So creative!

Made reservations at 8:30 pm. Got there around 8:25 pm. Restaurant was pretty empty which my girlfriend and I expected for a Sunday Night. However it took the host almost 10 mins to greet us. The host stand was empty and I asked the bar and oyster chef multiple times to see if we could get seated. Overall the experience was tarnish from there and we ended up leaving because everything was taking to long.
